A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it’s really simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you don’t want this feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
